Goodbye summer parting is such sweet sorrow

Well almost goodbye summer.

Goodbye in the sense that I no longer have to listen to MOM I'M BORED! or MOM WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO TODAY?

School starts on Monday and I couldn't be more excited.

I love getting the boys new supplies together and getting their back packs ready. I love the smell of new crayons and the feel of a new binder. I like to look at all the school supplies lined up on my kitchen table and just bask in their glory.

Never go shopping with me if I have to go to Office Depot. It is almost as addictive as Target for me and I could spend hours on the folder isle and another two or three on the pens and pencils isle. Oh don't forget the desk accessories isle.

And then there is the paper isle, and the storage isle.

Sorry I got side tracked for a minute.

But in honor of celebrating the last dog days of summer, I am going to take some time off.

I'm going to make sure to find something new for us to do everyday and find new activities to keep them entertained.

Although swimming has pretty much been our constant thing to do, since you know it 216 degrees out side.

So I'll be back on Monday to fill y'all in on the adventures we took and the place we went.

Happy end of summer.

Oh yeah,

If y'all get a minute, please say a quick prayer for R1. He is trying out for a new select baseball team today and I don't know who is more nervous, me or him.

Thanks!
